Comelec to study adjustments for 2022 National Elections

Marje Pelayo   •   May 14, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) faces a great challenge in the upcoming 2022 National Elections due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Among the possible major changes would be the schedule of the candidates’ filing of certificate of candidacy (COC) for the purpose of minimizing crowds and to curb the spread of COVID-19.

“Like mayor and vice mayor, they are both single elected positions. Baka mga dalawa o tatlong araw ang para sa kanila. The rest of the filing dates will be for the candidates for the Sangguniang Panlungsod o Sangguniang Bayan,” explained Comelec Deputy Executive Director for Operations Bart Sinocruz.

The Comelec en banc is about to decide whether or not to require candidates to submit a negative COVID-19 test.

The poll body may also issue guidelines on how candidates will conduct campaigns.

Even the presidential debate would possibly be done in hybrid wherein only the presidential candidates are present in the venue.

“Malaki talaga ang impact ng ating covid pandemic but rest assured the comelec is doing its best and kaya naman ng Comelec na gawin ito despite this COVID-19 pandemic,” noted Comelec Commissioner Marlon Casquejo.

The Comelec will resume voter registration on May 17 after the President placed the NCR Plus area under general community quarantine (GCQ) with heightened restrictions.

The poll body encourages the public to use the online i-rehistro platform in submitting information before going to the registration sites.

The deadline for registration is on September 30.

Registration venues are open from Monday to Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM

“Ultimately kailangan pa ring magpa biometrics so they really have to go to the Comelec offices,” noted Comelec Spokesperson James Jimenez.

Based on Comelec data, there are around 58.9 million registered voters expected for next year.

To date, there are about 3.5 million actual new registrants out of the Comelec’s target of 5.5 million individuals. MNP (with reports from Rey Pelayo)

Comelec to resume voter registration in NCR Plus on May 17

Aileen Cerrudo   •   May 14, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) will resume voter registration in the National Capital Region (NCR) Plus on May 17.

In a Tweet on Friday (May 14), Comelec Spokesperson James Jimenez announced that the schedule for the registration will be from Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Quarantine classification in NCR Plus which includes Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, and Bulacan, has eased to general community quarantine (GCQ) with heightened restrictions from modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ).

For those with appointments, applicants can contact the Comelec office they will register in or check the agency’s official Facebook page.

The voter registration was temporarily suspended after the NCR Plus was put under MECQ. This is to prevent the further spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) after the surge of cases. -AAC

Teachers group calls on Comelec to provide proper compensation during elections

Aileen Cerrudo   •   May 10, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — The Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) Partylist is asking the Commission on Elections (Comelec) for compensation raise and safety and welfare measures for the service of teachers during the 2022 national elections.

In a statement, the teachers’ group said they wrote a letter addressed to Comelec to request for an “online dialogue to discuss its proposals for ensuring ‘just compensation, safety, and the overall well-being’ of poll workers in the precinct level, majority of whom being public school teachers.”

The group proposed an honorarium of P10,000 for the chairperson, P9,000 for members, P8,000 for Department of Education Supervisor Officials (DESO), and P7,000 for the staff.

ACT also pressed for a P2,500 food allowance and a P3,000 transportation allowance for those assigned within the city proper and P5,000 for those in remote areas.

ACT Secretary-General Raymond Basilio said public school teachers have complained over unjust compensation and inhumane treatment of poll workers. Several of them rendered over 24 hours of service during the previous election.

Basilio also noted that with the effects of the pandemic, Comelec should also ensure the health and safety of the poll workers.

“They are the backbone and front liners of every election, and the government must exhaust measures to guarantee they are being subjected to a fair labor environment and granted proper compensation,” he said. AAC (with reports from Dante Amento)
